What Your Child Needs to Bring
Please send fresh fruit in a small plastic container or paper bag. Fruit needs to be prepared so your child can easily manage it. The preschool provides cold milk each day throughout the year.
Please send a sandwich and fruit in a lunchbox. We encourage good nutrition so sweets, cup cakes, chips and fizzy drinks etc. are not to be included. A plastic bottle of diluted fruit juice or water is to be provided with lunch.
Due to the high incidence of life threatening allergies amoung young children, no nut products are allowed at preschool. This includes peanut butter, nutella and nut bars.
If parents would like their child to celebrate their birthday at preschool, cupcakes are welcome on that occasion.
Paint, playdough, sand and messy play are an everyday part of preschool life so please keep this in mind when dressing your child. Keep clothing comfortable and practical so that children can manage it themselves. Practical shoes for climbing and running are also advisable. Please ensure that all clothing is clearly named for easy identification.
Please include a complete change of clothes in your child’s bag for any accidents that may occur.
Preschool provides a hat for your child. A levy for this is charged with Term 1 fees.
The emphasis of rest time is not on sleep, but on relaxation and quiet times. A comforter such as a teddy or security blanket is most welcome at rest time.
Please provide two small cot sheets and one small cot blanket in winter in a separate bag.
